I'm an amateur photographer who on the odd occasion is at the right place at the right time. I have been taking pictures since I was about eight years old using a hand-me-down 110 Instamatic. I've also had a Pentax Zoom 90-WR, Kodak Z740, and now a Kodak Z990 digital camera. I enjoy taking pictures of flowers (especially wildflowers), lighthouses, waterfalls, architecture, and other things I find interesting, which is just about everything. My profile picture is a self-portrait taken outside Voodoo Doughnuts in downtown Portland Oregon, July 2013.

Thank you very much, Andreutza. Ron.

Ah, yes. Peterson Butte. Looks like late summer after the grass seed harvest. I drove by there on Hwy 34 often when I lived in Lebanon.

Hi Pamela, I was going through your photos and enjoying them as usual. I noticed this one at Peterson Rock Garden, I remember the garden as a child when my grandmother would always make a point of stopping with my sister and I. As kids we thought the pretty rocks were really cool!

The thing that struck me about the photo was not the place, which brought back memories, but what was growing at the pond edge; a lush growth of yellow flag iris. Turns out this is a highly invasive species which quickly spreads in aquatic environments. It's the plant equivalent of zebra mussels! I bet the new owners of Peterson Rock Garden don't know what they have!

Keep up the good work. You are one of my favorite photographers.

Superbe composition (j'aime). Cordialement, J-Claude.

Oh my gosh, you must have a sister. By 1961 I was much too sophisticated to wear pop-beads. Ha! Thanks again.

Hello, Ole, thank you!

Nádherná fotografie, velmi dobrá práce! Like

Pozdravuji, Laci

Has there been anymore news on when Panoramio is closing? I saw that the petition reached over 10,000 signatures, but have no idea if it changed anything or not. It seems to still be up and running but for how long? I intend to delete my account instead of letting it migrate to Views. It would be nice if they gave us a deadline or something. I've pretty much stop posting new content here and am posting more things to Flickr, which has likes, favorites, comments, and groups, all the things we won't have with Views.

Hope everyone had a nice holiday season!
